Tips for dogs that react to animals and sounds on TV?

My 2 year old rescue dog (beagle retriever mix) absolutely hates when animals/creatures/horses/dogs appear on TV – he fusses, paces, barks, howls and just generally gets anxious. It’s not just real life animals, but also animated creatures! He also does this when he hears keys jingling on TV, I guess he thinks it’s a dog collar. Any advice on how to desensitize him to this? I’ve tried to reward him when a dog shows up or he can hear one on the TV that works at the time, but if I don’t have treats or a distraction nearby when a random dog bark shows up (which happens on basically every show) he’ll react I played videos on YouTube with dogs and puppies playing and barking and I worked on training as a distraction and even played with their favorite toys which works but usually doesn’t help when animals randomly appear on TV. The weird thing is that he doesn’t care about dogs in real life, he’s extremely friendly and loves meeting everyone, it’s only on TV! His least favorite commercial is the State Farm commercial with Aaron Rodgers and his dog playing fetch.
